On the Midway

This tapestry was inspired by the tempo of life, which I compare with being on the fair grounds of a carnival. The colours I chose are reminiscent of the kinds of colours one might find at the fair grounds, like cotton candy. The movement within the piecereminds me of a game I used to play as a child; I would spin around in circles, like a revolving top, stop suddenly, and then, everything that was stationary would seem to be rotating around me like a merry go round while I stood still. When things are moving around one so quickly, it is almost impossible to distinguish or isolate objects, faces, and figures.
